Q Is for Query

Query letters are something of a mystery to many writers; here at the Writers’ League of Texas, we field a lot of questions about how to write a good query letter. Wonder no more: Chuck Sambuchino’s “Guide to Literary Agents” blog is one of the best resources on the subject. Chuck (right) runs an ongoing series called “Successful Queries,” which features query letters that landed agents — along with comments by the agent about why the letter caught their attention.

The latest entry in the series (the 41st!)  is the query letter for Losing Faith, by Denise Jaden, with comments by agent Michelle Humphrey of  the Martha Kaplan Agency.

Here’s the link to the whole series. Browse through them and take the mystery out of querying!
